Ephemeral Stories

I try to tell stories with my work, either real or fictional. Using bits of ephemera such as ticket stubs, vintage magazine ads, old sheet music, tags, flashcards, book text, old photos I piece together a narrative and add multiple layers of acrylic paint, ink, tissue paper, stamped images and other mediums that create depth and richness to the piece. Just like in real life, each of us has a story with many layers. I often work in a series, but each piece tells a unique story just waiting to be discovered.

I love old photos as there is always a story to be told. In my current work I incorporate vintage photos using an image transfer technique. Some are family photos, others are vintage images from found postcards, cabinet cards, and vintage catalogs.

I love a good story. Listening to, writing about, and expressing stories through my art is what makes her smile. I grew up in a small mid-western town with 7 siblings which created a lot of fodder for good stories, often repeated at family events. I am also a collector, some say hoarder, of nostalgic and vintage ephemera. Putting together my love of the discarded with the beauty of a story telling makes for a creative combination.

Attending college in Minnesota, I earned a degree in Graphic Design. While traveling abroad I landed a job in Massachusetts where I lived for 25 years. During my time in the Northeast I enjoyed a successful career as a business analyst in several business sectors, but always dabbled in art. After moving with my husband to South Carolina, I am now able to focus on my art full time. As a mixed media artist, no supplies are off limits, but I primarily uses acrylic paint and mediums as a basis for all her work.

Welcome to Suzianna Art!

I’ve been dabbling in many different art forms ever since I can remember, from carving, bead making, floor cloths, jewelry making, painting and all manner of arts and crafts. I am also a pack rat and have a weakness for all sorts of bits and bobs. You know how it goes; “I’m not sure what I’ll do with it, but I’m sure something will come to me.”

I realized I could put the two passions or obsessions together in assemblage and collage art and recycle at the same time.

All my pieces are signed originals, so each is unique. If there is a specific bird type you would like we can negotiate a custom piece.

Please contact me at Suziannaart [!at] gmail.com with any questions.
